An Evening of Fashion, Music, Art and Marcel Proust

Thursday 30 May 2013

6pm - 8.45pm

 

 

Join us to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the publication of Marcel Proust's Swann's Way at Manchester Art Gallery in partnership with the University of Manchester.

Enjoy a multi-sensory journey back in time to the late 19th century Parisian salons from which the novel was born, and explore highlighted works from the Gallery's collection that relate to Proust's novel. 

Musicians from RNCM will be in the Galleries performing chamber music inspired by late 19th century Paris.  

A special guided tour will take you round the Galleries: starting with a talk by art historian Sophie Preston highlighting Proust's relationship with Manchester, and finishing with a discussion by dress historian Wendy Ligon Smith on Proust's beloved Delphos gown by Venetian designer Mariano Fortuny, newly on display.

Come early and enjoy a drink in our Cafe bar
